3. If they can they should. Theree are states which have penalties for such violations

and if this asshole plays this kind of game with our democracy, I hope it costs him a lot money in legal fees and penalties, and I hope he can't afford it:

What he is telling the voters in his state is that he will not honor the will of the people

8. I know Washington is one who has the law

In 1976 one voted for Reagan instead of Gerald Ford who carried the state. The faithless elector law was passed soon after.

4. Ugh (though at least in the Politico article he says "may", not "won't").

How can anyone think Hillary is a clone of Donald Trump? HOW? It's as cockeyed as Nader equating Bush and Gore.

5. Despicable. The alt-left enabling fascism,

we've seen this in history before, repeats itself.

Fascism rose in the 30's with significant help from the left. (notice how this guy repeats the same conspiratorial alt-right 'she's a criminal' type buzzwords).

How Dems allowed this to happen is beyond me. She can't afford to lose any electoral votes at this point, and now this shitstain comes along and tries to subvert the will of the people.
